How Long Does A Roof Coating Last?

Roof coatings are exceptional materials in terms of resistance and durability – they serve as the topmost layer of the roof, the layer that takes all the beating from the elements and they protect the roofing structure not only from the damage caused by the elements, but from energy loss as well.

The period for which roof coatings are able to fulfil these two roles depends very much on the type of the coating material, on the material’s properties and the thickness of the coating layer applied on the roof.
